Aftermarket Devices Guidelines

 The WorldDAB Aftermarket Devices Group was created in 2018 to develop Guidelines for manufacturers developing products for the automotive aftermarket devices and adaptors sector.


This is an ongoing project to help improve the user experience of Aftermarket Devices (AMDs) which include DAB digital radio in-car. The guidelines cover the three types of aftermarket devices on the market; car-specific devices, adaptors and black box solutions (slide 3).
